regulation, we'll be better off. i have a different view. i think we have to invest in education and training. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure that we're helping small businesses and companies that are investing in the united states. that we take some of the money that we're saving as we wind down two wars, to rebuild america. and that we reduce our deficit in a balanced way that allows us to make critical investments. now, ultimately it will be up to the voters, to you, which path we should take. are we going to double down on the top down economic policies that helped get us into this mess? or do we embrace a new economic patriotism, that says america does best when the middle class does best? i'm looking forward to having that debate. >> governor romney, two minutes. >> thank you, jim. an honor to be with you and pleased to be with the president. i'm pleased to be at the university of denver, i appreciate the welcome and the presidential commission on these debates and congratulations to you,

describe it, balancing our budget, energy, those are the cornerstonee of my plan. first, education. i agree, education is key for the future of our economy. our training programs right now, 47 of them are housed in the federal government, reporting to eight difffrent agencies. we've got to get those dollars back to the states and go to the workers. the secondary, taxation. we agree, we have to bring the tax breaks down both for corporations and for individuals. in order to not lose revenue, also lowered deductions and credits and exemptions so we can take in the same amount of money when you account for growth. the third area, energy. energy is critical, and production of oil and gas in the u.s. is up, but not due to his policies, in spite of his policies. mr. president, all the increase in natural gas and oil has happened on private land, not on government land. on government land, your administration has cut the number of permits and licenses in half. i am president, i will double them, and also get the oil from offshore and alaska, and i will bring that pipeline in from canada. by

we had fiscal responsibility and at the same time we invested in infrastructure and in education. >> it was a different time. it was also the dot-com boom. >> that came at the end, that's right. but most people who look at those years and exclude those years that just preceding the dot-com boom understand that was a very good economy. do you believe or does anybody -- i mean, i would be very interested in grover norquist if he thought the clinton years represented a bad economy and if they were bad tax rates. >> as much fun it would be to relive the clinton years tonight, mr. secretary, i'd love to get grover -- i want you to expand more on this deduction limit. are you saying it might violate the letter of the no tax pledge but it does not violate the spirit? >> no, no. the president -- romney's made it very clear that any tax reform that he approves will not be a tax increase. this idea of having this as an offset for lower rates at least 20% across the board lower. again, paul ryan and the republicans in congress want to take rates even lower. romney's not signing any net tax

ago, mr. mondale said something about education and college students and help of that kind. half -- one out of two of the full-time college students in the united states are receiving some form of federal aid. but there, again, we found people that there under the previous administration, families that had no limit to income were still eligible for low-interest college loans. we didn't think that was right. and so, we have set a standard that those loans and those grants are directed to the people who otherwise could not go to college, their family incomes were so low. so, there are a host of other figures that reveal that the grant programs are greater than they have ever been, taking care of more people than they ever have. 7.7 million elderly citizens who were living in the lowest 20% of earnings -- 7.7 million have moved up into another bracket since our administration took over, leaving only 5 million of the elderly in that bracket when there had been more than 13 million. >> mr. president, in a visit to texas -- in brownsville, i believe it was, in the rio grande valley --

anyway. i offer a new direction. invest in american jobs, american education, control health care costs, bring this country together again. i want the future of this country to be as bright and brilliant as its past, and it can be if we have the courage to change. [applause] >> president bush, your opposing statement. >> let me tell you a little what it's like to be president. in the oval office, you can't predict what kind of crisis is going to come up. you have to make tough calls. you can't be on one hand this way and one hand another. you can't take different positions on these difficult issues. and then you need a philosophical -- i'd call it a philosophical underpinning. mine for foreign affairs is democracy and freedom, and look at the dramatic changes around the world. the cold war is over. the soviet union is no more and we're working with a democratic country. poland, hungary, czechoslovakia, the baltics are free. take a look at the middle east. we had to stand up against a tyrant. the us came together as we haven't in many, many years. and we kicked this man out of kuwa

talked about aif you help with job retraining and education. i am a firm liever that our america 2,000 education problem is the answer. it will take a while educate, but it is a good program. her best hope for short term is job retraining if she was thrown out of work at a defence plant. tell her it's not all that gloomy. we're the uentd states. we faced tough problems before. look when the democrats had both the white house and the congress, it was throug. can do better. the way to do better is not to tax and spend, but to retrain and get the control of the mandatory programs. i am much more apt mystic about this country than some. >> mr. perot -- mr. perot, you have one minute, sir. >> well, the defense is going to have to convert to industries. the sooner they start the sooner they'll finish. there will be a significant. it is important not to let the industrial base deteriorate. we had someone who i regret said it, in the president staff said he doesn't care if we made potato chips or computer chips, anybody that cares about it, care as great deal. you make more computer chip

incentives for new jobs by an energy policy, creating new jobs. we cannot slow up on education, because that's the engine that is going to give us the economic growth and competitiveness that we need. and we are not going to slow up on the whole idea of providing for affordable health care for americans, none of which, when we get to talk about health care, is as my -- as the governor characterized -- characterized. the bottom line here is that we are going to, in fact, eliminate those wasteful spending that exist in the budget right now, a number of things i don't have time, because the light is blinking, that i won't be able to mention, but one of which is the $100 billion tax dodge that, in fact, allows people to take their post office box off- shore, avoid taxes. i call that unpatriotic. i call that unpatriotic. >> governor? >> that's what i'm talking about. >> governor? >> well, the nice thing about running with john mccain is i can assure you he doesn't tell one thing to one group and then turns around and tells something else to another group, including his plans that wi

. i think our future requires a president to lead us in an all- out search to advance our education, our learning, and our science and training, because this world is more complex and we're being pressed harder all the time. i believe in opening doors. we won the olympics, in part, because we've had civil rights laws and the laws that prohibit discrimination against women. i have been for those efforts all my life. the president's record is quite different. the question is our future. president kennedy once said in response to similar arguments, "we are great, but we can be greater.'' we can be better if we face our future, rejoice in our strengths, face our problems, and by solving them, build a better society for our children. thank you. >> thank you, mr. mondale.
